Wine and Dine like Catherine the Great

Empress Catherine the Great was famous for hosting the magnificent parties. She loved to celebrate and according to her a genuine Russian festive atmosphere springs up when the cooks carry their best delicacies to the table, the tastiest drinks are poured into glasses, a cheerful party sits down at the table, and the troubadours play their melancholy music.

Catherine loved French wines so the obvious choice for the aperitif is naturally champagne. To amaze everyone the bottle can be opened cavalry way with a sword! As it was not unusual for Catherine to arrange dinners with 15 courses, will we at Saslik of course serve also luxurious and plentiful menu including our best classic dishes.
